Apples for a sweet friend.

I know, I know!! It's been forever since I posted. I do have a good reason for that though. I got to spend a couple of days with Laurie and Julie, and another couple of days with my son. I was very blessed during both visits. Laurie, Julie and I, spent two blissful days shopping, eating and laughing!! Good times I tell ya!! Both of them are the absolute sweetest (when they don't have their ornery hats on of course), and both are a barrel of laughs. Time, spent with them, was too short. There was only one thing we didn't get to do much of..............sleep!!!!!! LOL

I also got to spend a couple of days with my son, who's in the middle of his Junior year of college. We had a fabulous time at a pumpkin patch where they launched a pumpkin towards a bulls eye about a 1/4 mile. Way cool. And they had a variety of critters to pet and argue with too. A gaggle of geese really had a lot they wanted to get off of their mind. LOL

Well, onto this weeks CCEE Challenge card. We were to incorporate a handmade ruffle. I just took PTI's Saddle stitched ribbon and pulled one of the white threads to make my ruffle. The beautiful apple image, that I got from Stamper's Dream, is from the set called Apple of my eye by Flourishes. It's stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and is colored with Copics. The yummy paper is from October Afternoon's paper pad Seaside. The rhinestones are Kaisercraft, and the border was made with an EK Success Punch and Scor-Pal.

That's about it gang. Head on over to the CCEE Stamper's Blog to see what the other gals have come up with. We'd love to see your handmade ruffles too. Just link your project with Mr. Linky.

Thanks so very much for stopping by.
Happy Stamping!!
